Those classes helped me reshape by body and build my core after two pregnancies in 2 1/2 years. Prenatal yoga was an important and sacred part of my second pregnancy. The classes helped me to have a relatively comfortable pregnancy and the techniques we practiced we useful during labor and delivery. Now I spend most of my time in the yoga studio. The hot yoga classes help me build strength, both mental and physical, and give me a great sense of confidence and accomplishment. Aerial yoga is a class where I conquer fears and remember that there is plenty of space for humor and humility in my practice. Picking one favorite class is impossible because it is through the holistic experience of everything that Beyond Zen has to offer that I find peace, balance, and harmony in my life.
Do you feel like you use your voice and express your feelings? Or do your comments stay mostly in your thoughts? This edition of Me Time will help you find your voice and allow you get out all those unsaid feelings with the healing power of sound. When we use our bodies to create sound, a vibration surges through our body and becomes an internal healing device, sweeping through the depths of our being. We will practice Six Sounds Healing, an ancient healing Qigong practice that will help process and heal those negative emotions that linger inside. It shakes up the sadness, anger, fear, worry and overthinking that makes our energy leak. The sounds will clear anything that has been built up or repressed for years and years. We will also enjoy the incredible healing effects of Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils along with question asking to help you dig in to the root and source of what made you lose your voice. If you are ready to become a truer version of your self, but have past stuff to deal with, this class will allow you to process the past and shake it out with the healing power of sound! This class will help you be brave, give you permission to speak up from your heart and will equip you with the confidence you will need to express your soul!
